Buying online

I have all the Myst CD games including Myst IV, but none of them work on Win 10. If I purchased the online versions will they work? And why is Myst IV not available online?

Myst III (CD) and Myst IV (DVD) can run on Windows 10.
But for Myst IV, I have to put the DVD inside an external (USB) Blu-ray player.

For Myst (or RealMyst, or RealMyst Masterpiece Edition), Riven and Myst V, I use the GOG (GoodOldGames.com) version.

For Uru (Ages Beyond Myst, or To D'ni, or The Path Of The Shell, or Complete Chronicles), as you know, I use a NoCD patch for the CD version, but I also use the GOG version.

For Uru Live, it also runs on Windows 10.

As far as I know, this post of mine should still be valid: viewtopic.php?f=16&t=657

I used a patch for Myst IV and it works real well, I wish the URU patch was as easy to use, lol.

I was on the site and it had all the games but Myst IV for about $12, I have to go back and find it.

Yes, Myst IV and Myst III are not on GOG. (If I found them there, I'd bought them.)

Also, ScummVM just started supporting Riven in their official build. I have not tested the new version myself, but it has worked well with the nightly builds for years.
Note that this also works for Myst and Myst: ME.
